If you like the game, forget all the dumb shit. If you don't have fun, perhaps a break is in order.
I'd rather them take the time to get this straight before going live again. I know it sucks, and I sure hope it isn't a bad sign that it's taking so long.
1.08 is a great set-up for the coming itemization patch. No matter how you dice it, things are getting set-up for a much better overall experience.
All in all, not every one will like it. Personally, after near a year of frustration and irritation, I'm starting to see the big picture here.
I've been extremely disappointed with the game since launch because it lacked a lot of what I was expecting to have in the game. However, I must admit that every patch I am starting to see a big picture forming for a good future for this game, as you say. I think they learned a lot over this year of what works and doesn't work for the franchise, and hope they put that information to good use for the expansion.
I think the biggest problem is that the community (myself included) probably came from WoW where are use to these grand patches that are coming out periodically. There was always something to do in terms of end game, then came here to Diablo and play the waiting game for the next patch instead. Each patch so far is going in the right direction, but it really is taking much too long between each one.
If we could pay a subscription in order to get more updates with more content, I would pay it.
I would not, which combined with your statement, is a pretty clear example of the "you can't please everyone" rule.
This is completely not meant as a flame or attack, but if you want a subscription-based game and the more frequent, larger updates that come with such games, why are you playing Diablo? I'm asking an honest question. I have zero desire to pay a monthly subscription fee, and thus consider Diablo 3 to be, by far, the best game I can play under such restrictions.
